  • Although we weren’t able to book Michael for our special day, his beautiful attention and care alone deserves a review. We fell in love with Michael instantly, he is a genuine and kind soul and really listens to the couples he meets with. He has great presentation and makes a deliberate effort to customize the experience. We felt that he cared about our marriage and not just the ceremony.

    responded with the following comments.

    No one gets reviewed by every client. Even though schedules wouldn't permit us to work with each other, you have graciously volunteered these kind words. I'm humbled by that. Thank you. It is always an honor to be asked by a couple to be part of one of the most life-changing experiences in their lives. Just being asked means a great deal. Your awareness of and sensitivity to what really matters in life will result in you fairing very well. God bless you on the journey. Rev. Michael
